Little Green Quilters Update

I've put the Autumn Beauty blocks away. I just
could not get motivated to cut the sashing.

Instead, I pulled out the Christmas fabric bin.
I found a small baggie with scraps and started to play!

 I've also been making some blocks using a charm pack of modern fabrics. I plan to make potholders out of them.

I am a winner!
Kansas Troubles sent me a jelly roll and a mini squares pack of their line called Cattails & Clovers. I don't know what I will do with these yet, but the colors are beautifully rich.
And I won a copy of this magazine! It is Volume 4 and filled with fun new innovative blocks by creative designers.
I won a copy of Volume 1 a few years ago.  I used that first one to make my Christmas Sampler Quilt...the one that I hope to get fully assembled in the next few weeks. I will be posting pics soon.

Lastly....I bought my first Kaffe Fassett fabrics! Kaffe Fassett is a textiles designer....fabrics, quilts, needlework, name it.
I don't know that I will ever buy more of his fabrics, but I did want to own just a little because he is so inspiring. I am not sure what I will do with these 30 beautiful 6-inch squares! I am just enjoying their colors on my design wall.

Little Green Quilters' Update

I have finished my maple leaf blocks! I need 72; it turns out I made 75. My design wall is too small to hang them all, and you can see the rest stacked on my ironing board to the right.
This next week is for sashing. It is not my favorite part of the assembly process, but it will make my chosen layout look great! I just hope I have enough fabric....

In the meantime, I do keep from getting bored by taking out a bit of red and white fabric to make blocks for my red-and-white quilts!
And last of all, here is a very bumpy pumpkin! I have never seen one like it before...
